No I don't believe it you can't swim? As a teen I wanted to swim the Channal to Catalina Island. Of course I probably had the endurance, but it would have taken me 2 weeks. But after I read the book "Jaws" all bets were off. I didn't go into the sea again until 2004 when I learned to dive. I am not a FF. I belong to the Hemet FD Cert program. I keep up with trainning and I put out a little fire in a 4 by 8 container. I was really scared. I hate fire. It's hot.
I really liked that program..When I graduated from High School I wanted to join the Navy and become a Nurse. My mother forbide it. It is one of my deepest regrets. It never occured to me to wait til I was 18 and join.
